HMYOI Aylesbury featured on BBC Two’s The Choir 

February 7, 2020

We were delighted to see some our learners from HMYOI Aylesbury feature on BBC Two’s The Choir with Gareth Malone.

The two-part documentary followed Gareth as he ventured into HMYOI Aylesbury to work with the young men to form a choir.

Gareth and the residents worked together to produce songs about their experiences in life and prison, and how they hoped to change their lives in the future with themes of hope and redemption.

Staff from the prison then joined the residents for a performance in front of family and local dignitaries in a disused cell block, which proved to be an emotional and moving experience for everyone.

You can catch-up on The Choir on BBC iPlayer here.
